Abstract: We are interested in how personal agents who perform calendar management on behalf of their human users can schedule meetings effectively. A key difficulty of concern is deciding when to reschedule an existing meeting in favor of a new meeting. We model the meeting scheduling problem as a special subclass of distributed constraint reasoning (DCR) called the Incremental, Limited Information Exchange Multiagent Assignment Problem (IL-MAP). Key novelties of our approach include i) a focus on incremental scheduling, ii) scheduling under a limited information exchange paradigm and, iii) using models of other agents to schedule more effectively. Our results are the first in DCR to show how models of other agents can be used to improve problem solving performance.
